  • General Information
    About Mount Sinai School of Medicine

    Mission Statement The Department of Pharmacy supports The Mount Sinai Medical Center with high quality pharmaceutical services. We assist the staff of the hospital and medical school in meeting their goals in patient care, research, and education in the following ways: 1. Investigation of drug distribution systems that are safe, reliable, and cost-effective: With satellite pharmacies helping to accomplish this goal, the pharmacist is responsible for all drug control on the patient unit, while introducing automated equipment to assist in the process. 2. Maintenance of the department as the prime source of drug information within The Mount Sinai Medical Center: This is accomplished with an increased availability of pharmacists and better access to drug information. The department will also make the Drug Information Center available for use by the entire staff. 3. Development of the concepts of Medication Use Evaluation throughout The Mount Sinai Medical Center by setting standards for the collection of data: Standards for all drug use are established in conjunction with the Medical Staff, and specifically the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee and the Investigational Review Board. The department monitors these standards through patient unit pharmacy mechanisms, data processing, and the supervision of staff members that specialize in specific areas of practice. 4. Expansion of department clinical programs: This is accomplished through the introduction of new programs that further utilize pharmacist's professional knowledge and skills, as well as an expansion of current programs to assume new responsibilities for drug distribution and use. 5. Continued education of residents, interns, and undergraduate students: Our goal is to prepare and encourage the student to enter the field of institutional pharmacy practice and prepare them to practice within the managed health care environment. 6. Maintenance of the fiscal viability of the Medical Center through proper financial management and responsibility within both the department and hospital: We will continue to develop indices and other sources of information to improve the department's financial goals. 7. Take responsibility for the acquisition, distribution, and review of medication utilization information in conjunction with Medical Staff
